The Scorpio single: "Stealin'" is a must.

"Lindy" is a probability.

"Sons & Daughters" - the a-side of "Fire In The City"
- stream at: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1966-12-05.sbd.kimbro.23064.sbeok.shnf

"Confusion Prince", "Standing On The Corner", "Keep Rolling By" and others from Birth of the Dead:

"Early Mornin' Rain" and "The Only Time Is Now", both feature some of Phil's finest vocals.

"I Know You Rider" with vocals from the early '66 studio sessions or from Vintage Dead (9/16/1966)


"Empty Heart" - on 1966 Rare Cuts & Oddities

"Cream Puff War", "Hey Little One", "Betty & Dupree" - on 1966 Rare Cuts & Oddities

Maybe the super fast "Good Loving" and "King Bee" from Rare Cuts.

"Golden Road", "Cold Rain & Snow", "Sitting On Top Of The World" "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew" & "New New Minglewood Blues" off the remastered expanded debut LP (WB-Rhino).

At least "Alligator" from Anthem of the Sun.(with some or all of side 1 if room).

Two From the Vault has the supposed quintessential "New Potato Caboose"

"St. Stephen", "China Cat Sunflower", "Rosemary", "Duprees Diamond St. Blues" "Mountains Of The Moon" from the original Aoxo-mix (derived from clean vinyl pressing)

original 45 mix of "Born Cross-Eyed" (not the thinner, slightly edited mix, as streamed on IA) and Dark Star (extended single mix) or "Dark Star" from Live Dead if there's room.


"Cumberland Blues", "Dire Wolf", "High Time" "New Speedway Boogie" "Easy Wind" from remastered Workingman's Dead.


"Box of Rain", "Till The Morning Comes", "Truckin'" "Ripple" "Candy Man" "Attics Of My Life" off the American Beauty half speed remaster.

Great work, CPW! I knew you'd come thru.

Yep, I had to have some of those examples of Phil on the 65 tracks. Love those more and more.

I really enjoy the studio efforts of the time period more and more as it shows just how versatile the boys were, and what they could do vocally when they put their minds to it.

Added Attics (AB studio) to show this clearly...

Thanks.
